Household Travel Survey Program

The regional travel survey collects day-to-day information from households in the central Puget Sound region: how we travel, where we go, how long it takes us - even where we choose to live and whether we get home deliveries.

The surveys help the Puget Sound Regional Council and communities throughout the region plan for transportation improvements, new housing, and job growth. For example, what role can transit, biking and walking play in improving regional mobility? Having a complete picture of activity and travel patterns helps produce better plans for the future.

The spring 2021 household travel survey was part of a six-year program with three waves (two-year survey cycles). The 2021 effort builds upon the 2019 and 2017 household travel surveys to continue to support a wide variety of agency and member data and analysis needs. 

The next wave of the travel survey program will be in 2023.
